Learning Objectives

The course aims to make students acquire knowledge of topography and cartography. Starting from the first graphic expressions of space, declining the respective theoretical-practical processes, we will arrive at the practical use of Compass, GIS, GPS and other instruments and their application in the geomorphological and geological field.

In the second part of the course, carried out mainly through exercises, the basic knowledge will be provided for a profitable use of the topographic map as a fundamental tool for reporting the geological and geomorphological data collected on the ground. The knowledge on the use of GIS will mainly be based on various practical computer exercises with data provided both in vector and raster format.
